NDP squelch Bighorn land use consultations with fake allegations of threats

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Notley NDP have a plan to create something called Bighorn Wildland Provincial Park - a $40M proposal to turn much of the land from north of Drayton Valley, south to Sundre, west to Banff and Jasper, into a park that will be mostly off-limits to those who have used it for generations for quadding, random camping, hunting and fishing.

Unsurprisingly, the government consultations on these land use changes are not going very well. People who live in the affected areas are angry and they're saying so.

So this week the NDP have shut down further consultations.

In a press release, Environment Minister Shannon Phillips, said:

“I have heard stories of Albertans afraid to attend community events, Albertans berated in public, Albertans followed home, and Albertans feeling intimidated to not speak their mind or participate in this important discussion. These reports are not only deeply concerning, this behaviour is not reflective of the values we all share. I call on all of my elected colleagues to denounce the bullying and harassment being faced by Bighorn supporters.

"As we do not feel we can guarantee the public’s safety or freedom from intimidation at this time, I am very disappointed to announce that the upcoming sessions for Drayton Valley, Red Deer, Sundre and Edmonton will be cancelled. The Government of Alberta will immediately re-evaluate our engagement plans in order to ensure Albertans in the communities of Drayton Valley, Red Deer, Sundre and Edmonton can participate safely."

But those threats that caused the cancelation of the consultations didn't happen - at least according to the local police.

One person in the mainstream media, Licia Corbella of the Calgary Herald asked the RCMP about these so-called threats:

“Const. Mike Hibbs, the media relations officer for Alberta’s RCMP K Division’s southern district, said Monday that he hadn’t heard of any threats.

‘I’m not aware of anything — of any threats at all,’ said Hibbs.”

Yet Phillips told reporters she was advised by police to shut down consultations.

What police? Where? Not these police.

Today I’ll tell you the real reason the NDP shutdown public involvement in the Bighorn land use changes and how this was the outcome I expected from the very beginning.

This isn’t the first time the NDP tried to impugn rural people as violent thugs to push through a radical agenda no one wanted, but with time running out on their accidental government, hopefully it will be the last.

Just imagine them imposing land use changes and outright prohibition of land use upon you on your own deeded private land. That’s exactly what they did in Ontario with Environmental Protection Zoning and the Greenbelt Plan. Not too different from those peasants in the U.S.S.R. who had to be “taken care of” because they opposed a dictatorship’s plan to centrally collectivize the land they had worked and developed and built upon during their lifetimes. Any Canadian who relishes their freedom needs to strongly denounce this kind of thing every time a government attempts it. We’ve already lost too many of our freedoms. “First they came for the… But I didn’t speak out because I’m not a… Then they came for the… And I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a… Finally, they came for me and there was nobody left to speak out.”

The NDP and the Libtards, cant stand the fact that the Public might enjoy the use of what is now “Crown Land”.

Dogs in the manger, the libtards and NDP….they cant help themselves from doing things that limit our rights and freedoms.

Commies need to lie because they are wrong.

Three of the main objectives of Agenda 21/30 – also known as Sustainable Development – are:
A – To abolish private property.
B – To neutralize the Judeo-Christian ethic that our creator imbued man with certain unalienable rights, including the right to life, liberty, and property.
C – To de-industrialize and/or depopulate the planet.
Given what THEREBEL has reported and documented over the years, it looks to me like Notley’s NDP are batting 1000 in this game…for the Globalists side and the UN!

That country is all logging and oil and gas where people make there living. The communist NDP are in bed with the Marxist eco terrorists outfits, and it’s part of their plan to create what they call the Yellowstone to Yukon corridor.

Sounds like projection on their part. Rural folks aren’t violent and liable to riot. Sheila found that out at the womens march in Edmonton.

Persons with low IQ’s should not be permitted to vote, this would finish the the NDP and it’s ilk, permanently…..Liberals too. Then, on second thoughts perhaps the NDP would be better than the genocidal morons that misrule us now. Whatever, they both believe in the good lord, Stalin.
In the UK you can now be sent to jail for saying or writing something bad about a Muslim, just wait until Trudeau hears about that one.

Ron Christenson it’s going to be the best day in the past four years, that’s for damn sure.
We may have to rename Victoria Day as Freedom Day.
